Blood will tell -  Kate Shugak Mystery by Dana Stabenow
Mystery matters less than people and place in this sixth adventure for
Native Alaskan investigator Kate Shugak (after Play with Fire).
Relishing the prospect of a solitary winter at her isolated cabin,
Shugak is pressured back to Anchorage by her grandmother, a leader of
her Native association. A member of the association board dies
mysteriously as the group prepares to vote on a controversial
development initiative for tribal hunting and fishing lands. Soon after
Shugak agrees to help, another board member suffers a fatal "accident."
With the help of her lover, Jack Morgan, a local policeman, and the
140-pound Mutt, her half-Husky, half-Arctic gray wolf, Shugak sorts
through tribal politics and a long trail of corruption in battles over
land and oil. Sensing that lobbyists and developers have penetrated the
Native association, Shugak fears that the truth may hit close to home.
Even if Stabenow sometimes lapses into lecture tones to solve the
puzzle, Alaska's rough and tumble history fascinates, and Shugak is an
eloquent voice for Native Alaskan concerns in changing times.
